  1. These are all such beautiful chairs, Lory! I have a couple in storage that I need to have reupholstered. You’ve inspired me to get them done!

    WE HAVE FOUR (TWO DIFFERENT STYLES) FRENCH CHAIRS, SO I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN ABOUT THE PRICES, BUT THEY ARE SO PRETTY AND AIRY LOOKING. THE TWO IN OUR FAMILY ROOM LOOK VERY MUCH LIKE YOUR TWO IN YOUR LIVING ROOM AND THE TWO IN OUR MASTER BEDROOM ARE FAUTEUILS WITH CANE BACKS. I LOVE THEM ALL, AND THEY MIX NICELY WITH OUR ENGLISH PIECES. THANKS FOR SHARING…ALWAYS ENJOY SEEING A FRENCH CHAIR! HUGS!

  3. Merci!
    I was just looking for this exact style of chair! (Actually for a pair for our living room) and your selections are fabulous- several of these would fit the bill
    Thanks for sharing

    Cheers!

    With all due respect, the only Louis XVI chair is the one with straight legs. All of the others are Louis XV. There are substantial differences in the style. Hope this helps.

    1. Thank you, but the post doesn’t say these are Louis XVI chairs. It says “there are some great budget choices available that are *influenced* by this style”.

  5. All beautiful, and I am considering one of them for my living room alcove to go with a desk. I noticed the seat height varies from 17.5″ to 20.5″. What is the correct seat height for a desk chair? All the desks I’ve looked at are a standard 30″ in height. The chair I like has a seat height of 17.5″. Will that work?

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Annie! I think desk chairs are best at about 17 1/2″ – 18″, but it definitely depends on a person’s comfort (which is why many desk chairs are adjustable). I have one chair at a desk that’s 19″ seat height and I think it’s a little too high. Also, most of these chairs are arm chairs, so they’re really more living room accent chairs than desk chairs, but for a seldom used desk, it could be a nice look.

    Please let me know where and how can i purchase one.

    1. Just click on the links of the ones you like and it will take you directly to the online shop where you can purchase it… 🙂

  7. Where the link/ website for these chairs? I am looking to buy a pair of them?

    Lory,

    Would Overstock be perhaps another?

    This is a bit off topic, but Pottery Barn had some awesome sales recently especially on their birch candles with timers. We love ours! They are pricey even on sale, but so worth it to see them come on at night!

    Ours are near the fireplace and the shadow thrown makes it look like a luminary hanging wreath hanging over the sides of the mantel. Most of our children have remarked on it absentmindedly asking where we purchased the new wreath. 😉

    It is good to keep an eye out or sign up a few places to give to best chance at purchase!

    I found the deal of a lifetime at the Habitat ReStore in Vero Beach, FL. A pair of Schumacher bergere chairs were marked $200 each! On that day, all upholstered furniture was half price, less my senior citizens discount, and another 5% discount, I paid about $200 for both chairs. I loved them but the 1970’s fabric and color of the wood was ugly. So, after I refinished them and had them reupholstered, they are gorgeous. I think every home with a French style needs a pair of accent chairs and you have shared some fabulous choices at affordable prices. Love your blog!

    I was just “window shopping,” and, of course, that cute wicker-backed chair is no longer available, but then I discovered another I liked was actually from Walmart and within reason! Amazing! I liked it because I find the arms on many chairs too high for comfort. Thanks for including some options for those of us on budgets.

  11. This is a great post. I’ve been obsessed with all things Louis XVI for a while now. There are some real beauties featured here. Thanks!

  12. Hi there ,

    Where can I purchase one of these gorgeous provincial chairs. Do you deliver to Canada?

    1. The chairs are all sourced in the post. Just click on the links and you can purchase direct form the stores… 🙂
